There is another syndrome you get when you're pregnant that I wasn't too aware of. It's called the dropsy syndrome. I suddenly have been cursed with butterfingers. No, not the yummy kind covered in chocolate (i want one now), but the kind where you're fingers don't stick to ANYTHING! I constantly drop things. Just yesterday I dropped my mascara wand, and what cute, dark spots now rest on my clothes and carpet! Just last week I dropped a bottle of cough syrup at work (not all my fault. Someone didn't put the lid on tight) and it spilled everywhere. It was all over me, the wall, the floor and the medication on the shelves. I spent forever cleaning it up. I drop pencils, spatulas, cooking spoons. You name it, I'll drop it! It gets really annoying, but the good news is it should suddenly leave me in about 5 months! Wahoo! I can't wait for that to be over.

I have the news that you've all been waiting for...................we're having a BOY! Everyone we talked to SWORE we were having a girl, but they were all wrong! We went to the ultrasound, and the little bugger just kept doing somersaults. Just as the guy would almost have the picture our baby boy just rolled around. We were trying to see the gender, and he just kept crossing his ankles and hiding his junk! Silly boy, modesty doesn't exist in the womb! We got some really good shots of him "flexing" his muscles for us, and he kept "boxing" when the ultrasound guy would hold still for just a minute. He was so cute! We love him already! Both of our mothers were in the room with us when we found out. Jeff and I just had perma grins on our faces the whole time. I heard a few (or should I say LOTS) of sniffles from the grandmas during the ultrasound. Jeff and I went in expecting it to be a boy, but hoping for a girl. We weren't too surprised. I think it finally sunk in last night, and we were super excited!

Wahoo! We get to find out the gender of our little peanut in 7 days and 5 hours, but who's counting? ! Oh, wait! I am! We have found the most gorgeous crib , and we have 2 possible bedding sets, but we have to see what the gender will be. LOTS of people think it's a girl, but you never know. My Doc has guessed TWICE now that it's a girl, but apparently his track record isn't that great for guessing the gender by the heartbeat. At my last appointment he told me it was his final guess. Funny guy, at my next appointment, we'll have the results of the ultrasound. I just hope the next week flies by! I'll keep you posted.
